Whether you’re looking for a spot treatment for pimples, a dark spot treatment, or an overnight spot treatment you’ve come to the right place. From pimples to hyperpigmentation, the word “spot” can mean a lot. Tackle your skin concerns with these five spot treatments.

 

Blemish and acne spots

Existing acne blemishes, dark acne marks and acne scars can all benefit from a spot treatment. These are the best acne spot treatments:

Breakout Control: Breakout Control is a lightweight benzoyl peroxide lotion that can be spread in a thin layer over the affected area or used as a spot treatment to target existing and forming blemishes. You can use it during the day under makeup or even as an overnight spot treatment.

Amino Mask: This 5% sulfur mask works to penetrate pores to treat acne breakouts and allow the skin to heal. Amino Mask can also be used as a spot treatment. Simply dab it onto a blemish or problem pore and follow the regular mask directions, leaving it on for 15 minutes and rinsing off.

Oxygenation: While this product is often used as a moisturizer, estheticians recommend it as a spot treatment as well to help purify problem pores.

“If you have acne or scarring along your jaw, you can apply a thin layer of Oxygenation over that area or even dab it right onto the problem spots. The antiseptic nature of the hydrogen peroxide in Oxygenation will fight bacteria and provide the skin with much needed oxygen to tackle those problem spots.” –Teresa Stenzel, Bioelements Director of Education

 

Hyperpigmentation and dark spots

Hyperpigmentation can be caused by acne, UV exposure, hormonal imbalances, and injury to the skin. Regardless of the cause, if you want to rid your complexion of dark spots, use a targeted dark spot treatment like the one below:

LightPlex GigaWatt Dark Spot Corrector: Pinpoint and obliterate stubborn, isolated age spots, discoloration, sun spots, and acne scars with this lightning-fast formula. This formula really works – in fact 99% of people say that it helps correct uneven skin tone and discoloration *. Apply directly to spots every morning (be sure to layer SPF over it!) and use as an overnight spot treatment.

 

Breakthrough oil spot treatment

Suffer from oily skin or breakthrough shine? Our favorite oil blotting creme can double as a spot treatment.

Oil Control Mattifier: Give your skin a matte finish, blot oil and keep surface shine at bay by spreading a thin layer of Oil Control Mattifier on your face or dabbing it onto problem areas – like around the nose, chin or forehead. You can even apply over your makeup to blot any breakthrough oil.
